Along with this, the products that have been developed has only been used in Indonesia and the Philippines, but it was approved for use in the European Union in the previous December.

Additionally, the mRNA vaccines produced by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna or viral vector made by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, Nuvaxovid is a protein-based vaccine.

All of the vaccines include a non-infectious element on the surface of the Sars-CoV-2 virus, which generates a protective immune response when the body’s immune cells come into contact with it.

The last June, Novavax has made the declaration that the vaccines that are developed under them are proven to be more effective, over 90 percent against all of the symptomatic infections with the Alpha variant, in trials including almost 30,000 volunteers in the United States and Mexico.
